MOORHEAD, Minn. — The supermarket: an everyday convenience that Americans sometimes take for granted. To us, the "super" in supermarket is often overlooked. We're accustomed to our fully-stocked produce sections, wide aisles and plethora of choices. But if you're not from here — if you're a new American or simply a tourist from another part of the world — then you might find American supermarkets a little out of the ordinary, overwhelming or just plain odd.
FARGO — Like millions of other American families with daughters, we live in a household full of Disney princesses. Even though my daughters are both teenagers now, that doesn't mean we chucked our DP goods in the garbage. Call it sentimentality (or laziness), but our house still has its share of Disney princess Barbie dolls, coloring books, pillows, blankets and Halloween costumes.
Don't you hate it when you spend hours in the kitchen making a super time-intensive dessert only to say to yourself, "Meh ... that was just OK, and I just consumed a ton of calories. So not worth it"? This Patriotic Rollup cake does not fall into that category. A Facebook friend of mine shared it a while back, and I chose to make it for a Memorial Day gathering at the lake. I didn't have a ton of time to fuss with a complicated recipe, so I just threw this together. It was a huge hit!
